  • What a waste. Columbia/Sony could’ve compiled 2 discs worth of all of the great songs from Aerosmith’s first seven studio albums and paired them with stuff from “Nine Lives”, “Just Push Play”, and the “Armageddon” soundtrack (all on the Columbia/Sony label), and by putting that against Geffen’s “Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology”, you would’ve had four CD’s worth of truly ALL the Aerosmith hits. But Columbia had to cop out and partner with Geffen, the label responsible for navigating the band’s triumphant late-80’s comeback, to shoehorn in the usual array of hits that had already been covered on “Big Ones” and again on “Young Lust”. So instead of the “ultimate” collection, you are left with plethora of missing tracks: “Toys In The Attic”, “No More, No More”, “You See Me Crying”, “Train Kept A-Rollin”, “Sick As A Dog”, “Lightning Strikes”, “Kings And Queens”, “Come Together”, “Remember (Walking In The Sand)”, “What Kind of Love Are You On”, “Hole In My Soul”, “Fly Away From Here”, etc. If you want to come as close as you can to collecting all of Aerosmith’s hits without having to get all of the original albums, pick up “Greatest Hits”, “Gems”, and “Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology”. The latter collects pretty much everything you could ask for from their Geffen years, and the first two are decent overviews of their first six classic albums (severely edited versions of “Same Old Song And Dance”, “Sweet Emotion”, and “Kings And Queens” aside). Me personally – I’ve just got all of the studio albums.
